I have one computer connected via HDMI cable to my TV which I use almost exclusively to watch programs on NETFLIX or HULU. I realized I didn't need all my bookmarks or websites on my toolbar, so I thought I could simplify by deleting them. When I opened Firefox on my main computer, (different from computer connected to TV) I found that sites I deleted from my toolbar on the computer connected to the TV were also deleted from my main computer.

Is there a way I could separate these two computers so that a change made on one doesn't also get made on the second? Thanks for any help!

On the page, thesudoku.com, whenever I enter data the search bar immediately takes control.

I tried the page refresh where once on the page, where one opens ctrl+R - no joy. I then tried clearing cache by going to the library and reset history, both Today and All - no joy.

The above was supplied by the tech support at thesudoku.

I went to Edge and the page works okay, but I hate Edge.

I assume that since I have yet to find anyone else with this problem that somehow a setting was changed on my PC. Still, I am having problems finding how to fix this.

Thanks J.M.

Good day everyone,

I am using firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit), on windows 10.

If i set the firefox to not remember history, the add on button beside the address bar will be missing and a [flexible space] will be there instead.

If i revert the setting to remember history then the add on button will appear again.

How can i set the icon to appear if i want the setting to not remember history?

Thanks

I have Firefox set to always open Google.com when a new tab is opened. Before yesterday's update (Aug 27, 2020) the cursor would appear in the Google search bar on opening a new tab, which is the way I want it. After the update, Google still opens as before, but the cursor is at the from of the address bar instead of the Google search bar. I've tried a couple of things to fix this with no luck. What should I do?

Hello, my browser continuosly crashes. It will surely crash if I open another program in my computer, but it will even randomly crashes during use. It all started after the last browser update. The browser regularly works in Safe mode. I tried disabling manually my add-ons one a time to understand if one of them was responsible, but it still crashes. My last report with the crash reporter is: bp-995e9dd2-c095-4feb-8f5c-d54fa0200917 Can you help me?
